Subject: Thank You
Thank you for posting. I used clips from three Betty Boop cartoons from archive.org to make a lyric video for my song "Who Do You Think You Are?". The clips are: "Betty Boop's Rise To Fame", "Be Human", and "Betty Boop and Little Jimmy".https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khDIR4VeQDI&feature=share

So it would be okay to abuse animals if they COULD defend themselves?

and many other great gadgets with the wonderful gramps.
Not so sure about the message!...if you whip animals , then you deserve to be whipped?-----...not the best of the betties. but not bad.

Subject: Grampy: Animal Rights Activist
This is not too bad a cartoon as it features Grampy, the king of cartoon gadgetry. Betty's mean farmer neighbor abuses his animals, refusing to stop even after she sings the title song endorsing kindness. So she calls up Grampy and he shows the jerk a thing or two. He hooks the farmer up to a whipping treadmill which powers all kinds of bizarre machines which benefit the animals. This would be a good one to show with Catching Trouble and Creation.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.

Subject: A good message for humans.
This cartoon is a delight as its message is a positive one.It is wrong to hurt or harm innocent creatures ,because after all they can't defend themselves against our abuses.So put simply Be Human. Sweet little cartoon-this one.
